There is nothing in the flash mob article that indicated the skin color of the assailants. Anyone who automatically assumes the attackers are persons of color is a racist. Blacks do not have lower IQs. They are victims of family dysfunction and higher incarceration rates because they are racially profiled and therefore more likely to be arrested than whites, and because they are discriminated against to the point of economic disadvantage, which can tear apart any family, regardless of color. I am ashamed that members of my community could be so blatantly, willfully ignorant and intolerant as the boneheads who posted all this crap.
Actually, it would be considered stereotyping because of 90% of the mob attacks that have happened, have been blacks. So just to be PC, you should read the definition of Racism. Look it up. No, really.
Have any of these attackers been a group of white youth? Any of them? Is it racist to assume the skin color of the attackers was dark? Would anyone be surprised if that was the case? Now flip it. Would you be surprised if you heard that the attackers were all white? If so, would that make you racist? The race statistics on murder and violence speak for themselves, and pretending they don't is ignorant. Most people don't want to be racist, they just want to enjoy downtown without fear of violence. But if you were walking down the street, a large group of whites on one side, and a large group of blacks on the other. Which side of the street would you walk down? Does it make you racist to choose the side with the color that is statistically less violent? Would that be wrong?
